The $6 billion Walsh planned community in west Fort Worth will boast a minimum 2-gigabit internet speeds, for the 15,000 homes, schools, and businesses planned there, Builder Online reported.
Tony Ruggeri, co-CEO of Dallas-based Republic Property Group (RPG), is touting Walsh as having baseline internet speeds that are faster than any other development in the country, according to the Dallas Business Journal.
Home builders will break ground this month on the 7,200-acre, master-planned community. All homes will be connected to the ultra-fast fiber network from day one, and the internet service will be paid through the neighborhood’s homeowners association (HOA) dues.
Homeowners can also boost beyond 2-gigabit to speeds as fast as 10-gigabit for a fee.
The Aledo school district plans eight campuses in the Walsh community that will also be connected to the large fiber network.
Home prices will start in the upper $200s in the Walsh neighborhood. Presales are expected to begin in early 2017.
“Our builders bring a unique mix of local, regional, and national character and expertise that will deliver on our vision to make Walsh the next great neighborhood of Fort Worth,” Jake Wagner, co-CEO of Republic Property Group, said in Builder Magazine.
RPG’s Tony Ruggeri and Jake Wagner were named Single-Family Developers of the Year by D CEO Magazine in October.
